There are plenty of pix of both high and low Carpathian ranges and massifs on the Parent Page and its numerous child pages. Some of those mountains are just a few dozen meters too low to qualify here, where you'll find just one 'summerish' and one 'winterish' photo of the highest ranges rising above timberline. Images that show a broader scene, prominent peaks and geologic bricks will be preferred, which means that plenty of wonderful pictures will not be included, e.g.: beautiful flowers and butterflies (which I generally love), not even any truly Carpathian butterflies; bizarre rock formations; the stunning red alpine wintry creatures or fiery sunsets.
If your favourite season is winter, you'll find a winter collection down below the long summerish thru-trek.
when I started my Carpathian adventure (take away my regular childhood vacations at the foot of the Tatra Mountains), at nearly 18 years of age, I headed for Babia Góra (Witch Mtn), the highest peak of the Żywiec Beskid because:
1 I thought I needed some training before scrambling in the Tatras
2 Beskid Żywiecki was the nearest Carpathian range rising above the timberline.
I believe most SP'ers will find both of the above reasons reasonable and hope you enjoy this guided virtual trek along the most elevated sections of the great Carpathian Arc - from its NW to its SW end.
